Similar Triangles

A first exposure to similar triangles can be very visual for the learner using the Zome modeling system. Here, young geometers explore the number of different shapes that can be constructed from a set number of components. They then draw conclusions about similar triangles. Tip: This can be extended to include trying to build similar triangles and comparing the angles and sides of each.

Lesson Planet is a great portal that has given me a lot of great ideas for topics for which I have less preparation, such as physical science.
